The Meetings Show – the UK’s leading trade show for the meetings, events and incentives community – has signed a three-year deal to remain at ExCeL London until 2026.
The two-day event, together with Business Travel Show Europe and TravelTech Show, brings the business meetings and events industry together for connection, learning and networking, and has been held at London’s largest events venue since 2021.
The Meetings Show, Business Travel Show Europe and TravelTech Show are part of Northstar Travel Group, the leading global provider of business-to-business information and marketing services serving all segments of the business and sporting events, travel and hospitality industries.
“We are absolutely thrilled to commit to ExCeL for another three years,” said Nick Powell, managing director EMEA at Northstar Travel Group, whose team is currently busy behind the scenes to build on this year’s record-breaking success to create another innovative edition in 2024.
“Since the move of The Meetings Show to ExCeL, it really feels like home. The transport links are great – especially with the Elizabeth Line serving the location – and the infrastructure being built around it is world class.”
ExCeL’s pioneering work in helping to tackle the climate crisis strengthened its appeal to Northstar Travel Group. Certified carbon neutral by 2022 and the first UK venue to achieve internationally recognized PAS 2060 status, ExCeL’s values around sustainability and community are strongly aligned with those of The Meetings Show.
Nick Powell, managing director EMEA at Northstar Travel Group, added: “The synergy between The Meetings Show and ExCeL in terms of values and vision is clear and we look forward to continuing to work together.”
Ian Senior, senior account manager at ExCeL London, said: “We are pleased that under Nick Powell’s leadership, The Meetings Show and its brand are only going from strength to strength. We will continue to support it and have a great presence on the show. We are very excited to continue talking about our expansion and development and the best place for us to do that is at The Meetings Show for the next three years.”
Next year’s edition of The Meetings Show will take place from June 19 to 20. It gives event organizers the opportunity to meet hundreds of suppliers, develop their industry knowledge and stay ahead of current trends, streamline the event planning process and expand their network.
